CORRIGE DU DEVOIR COMMUN D'ANGLAIS THE QUAD Lunchtime at Monroe High was always the same. When the bell rang at the end of morning classes, students went to their lockers. Then the ones who didn't eat in the cafeteria often took their lunches to the quad: a large square in the centre of the school. It was the place where students usually ate and met. The inside of the quad was no-man's land: the school children never walked across the quad. To get from one side to the other side, they walked around the quad. Everybody knew it, so nobody did it. Then one day, a new student arrived. Her name was Lisa. She was nice, but she didn't make friends easily. She was timid and her clothes were... not cool at all. It was her first day, and the morning was difficult. She couldn't find her classes and she arrived late to each lesson. Finally, the lunch bell rang. She went to her locker to get her lunch and her books for all her afternoon classes. Lisa walked across the quad to her class. While she was walking, all the students were looking at her. She was in the centre of the quad when she realised something was wrong. It was absolutely silent and hundreds of eyes were watching her. Cruel, cold, mocking eyes. While everybody was looking at her, Lisa fell down. She was in the centre of the quad, and she couldn't get up. All the faces started laughing at her, and fingers pointed at her. She was terrified. She couldn't move. Suddenly, a tall boy appeared. He was walking rigidly to the centre, to Lisa. The pupils got quieter, and then stopped. The boy walked in the silence, his eyes were fixed on the girl. He simply picked up her lunch bag and the books, then he put his arm under hers and looked into her eyes. She stood up. They walked across the silent quad, and the people on the perimeter moved to let them pass. The next day, at lunchtime, a bizarre thing happened. When the bell rang at the end of the morning classes, from all parts of the school, different groups of students walked across the quad. No one could say why it was OK now, but it was.
